I See You at The Flea is a back and forth conversation between the parents of two young children who meet on a playground. The script deals with a wide range of topics such as over-medicating America to extramarital affairs.
Throughout the entire performance I felt as though I was watching a conversation between the eternal “angel and devil” that asks age-old questions. I fell in love with this piece. As a young woman in my 20’s I wasn’t sure how I would relate to a show which is about being a good parent in a scary world, while staying true to yourself. Much to my surprise this was one of the most moving pieces of theater I have ever experienced. The actors touched upon nerves that would strike chords in anyone. It made me think a lot about my relationships with my own parents and how, on daily basis, so much can go wrong when raising children.
The set was simple and minimalist; it’s the dialogue you need to focus on. I left the theater feeling inspired about the future and grateful for my past. In a world where so much seems to be wrong…I See You is something worth watching and has been done impeccably right. GCV
